What Month is This?

February Is Birthday Month

  It's the time of year that we all love to celebrate.
 One of my children, in her early years thought that by default
all birthdays were held in one month, the month of FEBRUARY.
It is so so many of us celebrate this next month.

 Cakes are part of every party and each one gets to choose their own.
 We have had the added excitement of celebrating Ivy's first birthday.

 She celebrates with her Opa...just one day prior to his birthday.
And she loves playing with him.
Can you guess her favorite game?

Peek A Boo!

She came into this world hanging onto Monkey for dear life.

Know you know the theme of her birthday.
Her Mum and Dad decorated and baked this beautiful birthday cake.

 Meanwhile I've been laid up after my knee injury.
I was told that I have ruptured a few major ligaments and that I must go to rehab.
Lots of icing and elevated legs lifts.
Meanwhile it has given me time to teach 'finger-knitting' to Silas.
He is  making headbands for everyone.

Meanwhile, Levi keeps busy with volleyball.
And the others continue to ski without me on Saturdays.

Sharing  moments like this keep one inspired....

This week I have an appointment with my 'real therapist'
(her husband Joe is smiling on)
She will assess the injury and we will celebrate our birthdays together.
What better way...

But she instructed me to leave my skis at home.


  1. February is full of birthday blessings for sure! Enjoy your time with your "therapist".

  2. Beautiful cakes, smiles and shared moments inspite of having to slow down a bit and let that knee heal. Your are making the most of the time and I join you in praying that next winter you will be back on the slopes. Enjoy your trip!

  3. I sure love the look of the cakes! This busy season of birthdays will always be a special time of year for your family. Enjoy your time!

  4. Aww Marg - such a sweet post. Happy Birthday to all and especially that sweet little Ivy - so adorable. I love that you are teaching Silas how to finger knit - wish I could get a few knitting lessons from YOU. I might just have to follow your lead and take some lessons somewhere. I've been wondering how your healing was going and glad to hear you are taking good care of it! Hugs ...

  5. Your updates haven't been showing up on my blog and I've missed reading about your injury. Sorry to hear you have been hurt. Hope you are on the mend now and that you can enjoy your family, including your cute Ivy.

  6. What a lovely post, though I'm sorry to hear about your knee and hope it heals quickly.

    The birthday cake reminded me of growing up in Alberta. Every year until I was about nine, my aunt Cora always made me a round white layer cake for my birthday, with lemon curd between the layers, and topped with "seven minute white frosting." I never see or taste lemon curd without thinking of her. It's a very sweet (no pun intended!) memory.

  7. Marg, I hope you are healing quickly! There is some consolation in convalescence-- KNITTING! Happy Birthday to (all of) you!
